Do you mean, just you and one other guy who's not your boyfriend? Or do you mean just you and a group of other guys?
You can hang out with whoever you want to, really... But what's the context? Is it hanging out with a friend who's a guy and playing videogames or going shopping? Are you going to be at home alone just watching a movie? Going out for dinner together?
Does your boyfriend know this other guy?
What are the intentions of the guy you're going to be hanging out with?
I think a potential problem would be if the other guy that you're hanging out with has different plans or intentions than you... If you're happily in a relationship with your boyfriend and have no desire or interest in anything sexual or romantic with this other guy friend, but he's crazy about you and wants you to be his, then there could be problems.
Partly for this reason, if your boyfriend doesn't know the guy you want to hang out with, fear of the unknown (rational or irrational) might cause your boyfriend to be jealous or bothered.
I think the answer to this question is one you'll need to figure out for yourself and your boyfriend.
Look at it this way though: Flip the situation around and lets say your boyfriend wants to hang out with a female friend of his, alone.
How does it make you feel? What are your fears, concerns, or worries? Under what conditions would you be comfortable with him being with another girl all alone, and what conditions make you uneasy?

I would be very uncomfortable if my boyfriend were to hang out with another girl alone, and thus I do not hang out with other boys alone.
The only time I would, would be if:
A.) He hangs out with another girl alone so I'm making things "fair"
B.) I have no other choice (e. g, others leave the room and its just me and him and for whatever reason I can't leave. However, I don't see how this would happen and I probably wouldn't really hang out with the guy anyway but just go on my phone or something).
C.) The guy is not someone my boyfriend would have to worry about as a potential threat anyway since it would be a guy from my family or too old for me such as a grandpa figure or something like that.0
